POCC is now leaving BURST, they wrote it on Twitter:
I have been watching the whole discussion on reddit and the discord over the last weeks and I am dissapointed about the lack of professionality from every side.
So the POCC is leaving BURST after the complaints about double mining on their pools without informating their miners.
Every miner has the right to complain about everything he wants to but has to keep in mind that the POCC worked for free and should use fair diplomatic words for the complain.
And the POCC Team should be diplomatic too. For me they did good work und good software. I can't believe that they are leaving BURST only of the complaints the last weeks about the double mining.
The POCC tells they owe "us" nothing. And they are right about that.
But it's like in real life. There are always some people that are shouting and complaining about things.
Only someone is complaining about something or me I don't quit at all !! In real world business you need reliability.
Of course POCC owes the community nothing and I don't know their real reason why they are leaving. But in my opinion they overreacted in some way (and the community too)
For me it sounds like General Motors stops building cars because someone is complaining. If GM would do this they would be called crazy.
Too much emotions on all side the last days. I don't know the POCC members and their (de-)motivation to work on burst.
If I would have the skills to build the dymaxion i would never quit because of something like this.
We need highly skilled developer and programmer who can realize something like DYMAXION on the technical side AND we need the professional for emotions and marketing who can moderate when problems are discussed. It's like in the real world. Some guys are genius in developing but have lack in human interaction. Some guys can talk over hours and can convince with calm professional words without drama but can't develope anything. Perhaps someone can do both !!
Cryptocurrencies and in special BURST is nothing emotional. But humans are able to make strange things when they feel hurt even when it seems to be totally absurd.
In a certain way i think the POCC feels hurt by the community. All in all they shouldn't have made this hard decision to leave burstcoin. It is their decision.
If we want anybody (professional businesses or privat people) to adopt or invest BURST the most important thing is realibility. If you announcend something official you better should do the work until it is completed or you shouldn't announce it.
The POCC wrote on Twitter that they will do whatever they want to do with their pools and that is ok because this time they said it clearly and the miners knows about that. So everybody has the choice to use or not to use the POCC pools.
I really appreciated the previous statements of POCC during the network attack summer 2017. The said they are here to stay and not be emotional drama like burstnation and that they are here to stay in the long run. And now all this emotional drama during the last weeks adn then this hard short end. For me the long run in not less than 5 years. POCC seems not to be appreciated about the "community". They say there is no real communtiy. But that is the lack of all decentral anonym cryptocurrencies and i think perhaps that could be reason the most cryptos will fail.
The "communtiy" is the same like before all this trouble over christmas. Nothing has changed. The POCC wrote they "also came to the conclusion, that there is not a healthy culture of give and take between core team and community and what’s worse". I am sorry to read this. I always thought their aim to be in the top 10 would give them more than the community could give on money. Should the community give more love or be more thankfull, I don't get it ? I always has been thankfull and wondering how fast they are developing software for burst over the last year!!
For the conlusion i give you discussion about the dual mining complaints i wished for
Hey, are dual mining on your pools without informing me ?
Possible answer from POCC
Yes we did some testing for this option and in the future you have the choice to do dual mining or not. And if its stable we reward you someway. We are dual mining with BHD, we know it's not you favorite coin but we want to give you this options with our pools. If you don't like dual mining you can deactivate this option.
Possible answer from POCC
Yes we did some testing for this option. We are dual mining with BHD or any other poc coin in the future. We know it's not your favorite coin but we wanted to do this to give more efficiency to our Pools and give the developers some more money for developing burstcoin. They do hard work and we figured out that there is not a healthy culture of give and take between core team and community, so it would be a good support from the community for us doing dual mining.
But it wasn't that way.
I read something about attacking BHD and selling BHD to destroy BHD. An 51% attack, Emotional DRAMA, Trust, people attacking each other, People like nixops got banned from cg discord ...... . Personally i was thinking " what the hell is going on its christmas ". It could have been easy for POCC / Community to give an short answer and calm down but it wasn't that way. The drama keeps up more and more and i think that some people want to get this drama for their own reasons. That's what i am disapppointed, all of this drama and emotions even the leaving of POCC was unnecessary. The PoCC did amazing work and had the right vision (Dymaxion) but in communication this time they failed. What did POCC team think of what happend if some miners on their pool finding out that they are dual mining with no reward and more electricity using and the POCC team made no information about that. They have to know that some miners would freak out about that and that they complaining about this in the forums. The POCC must have known that some miners are not amused about that.
During the announcing of the POCC Team they told not to be emotional and that they professionals and want to develop Burstocin without drama to the top 10. I am just wondering what happened the last 4 weeks to the real goal " The Dymaxion". I can't believe that this vision is falling victim the dual mining and lack of communication skills on all sides over the last 4 weeks.
